Advanced Photoaging with Significant Hyperpigmentation

Daily Care Regimen

This regimen is designed to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote an even skin tone. The products used focus on the appearance of both concerns simultaneously for optimal results.

Note: Mild irritation may initially be experienced with use of the retinol product in this protocol and is not a sign of a negative complication. Introduce slowly, starting at once or twice a week and building up to every other night or nightly, depending on tolerance.
